Fatherless Fanny; or a Young Lady's First Entrance into Life: Being the Memoirs of a Little Mendicant and Her Benefactors.

by Anon.

Published September 23, 2006


This 1811 novel is the story of a young girl whose parentage is unknown but obviously well-to-do. Abandoned at an elite boarding school but befriended by a chance-met stranger, her life is full of mystery... and humor! Possibly the only novel ever written in which a dog's pedigree is mistaken for that of the heroine. No wonder it went through so many editions!

Subject: Nice story
This is a good story, if a bit convoluted. I had to take notes and jump around a bit to make sure I understood who was who.

Fanny is a sweet young girl who is an orphan. Abandoned at a school for girls, and destined for the workhouse, she is adopted by a young Lord who likes her and feels sorry for her. She is relatively accepted into society, but she is still Fanny, with no last name. But Fanny is more than just a nameless girl, and she is surrounded by those who would see her dead before seeing her succeed to her rightful place.

The reading was a bit rough, but the voice is nice, so it was okay overall.
